As the nation and our communities adjust daily, even hourly, to the COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) pandemic, United Way of Southeast Alaska, like many others in Southeast Alaska, has sprung into action to support our 34 partner agencies and other community partners.
While our nurses, doctors, and other health care professionals combat COVID-19 on the front lines, United Way is working with our non-profit partners to directly help individuals and families affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic while also supporting 211, the go-to information resource in times of crisis. In short, United Way of Southeast Alaska is committed to standing with our communities and supporting those impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
You can help!
100% of the donated funds will be used to support Southeast Alaska area needs.
With your help, United Way and our partners will be best able to address the needs of our neighbors most affected by the economic consequences of the pandemic, such as individuals without access to sick days, service industry workers placed on unpaid furlough that threatens housing stability, or families left without quality childcare due to school or facility closure.
More specifically, your generosity will be used for efforts to address the short-term emergencies and long-term response and recovery efforts, including, but not limited to:
· Food distribution to students affected by school closures and other vulnerable populations who are isolated or lack access.
· Availability of shelter beds for people experiencing homelessness who do not have the resources needed to stay safe.
· Operational funding gaps for health and human service agencies.
· Loss of income and access to services for vulnerable populations.
Together, as Alaskans, we will overcome this pandemic by making sure the most vulnerable among us are protected. UNITED WE WIN.
